Update on that Iranian boat "attack"
Interesting how storylines can either evolve or devolve over time. This one is definitely devolving: everyone is disowning the claim that the Iranian speedboats ever posed a threat and that the Navy ships were "close to firing" upon them.
As one official said, "It's...surprising that President Bush was permitted to get so far out in front on this issue, even though there were significant uncertainties on what transpired." Ya think?
